I was looking thru the Tivo guide stuff and saw a video for DirecTv On Demand. Looks like a new service they have in Beta right now. Hooked up my reciever to the broadband conection and need to wait for it to download the titles/channels now. Should be able to check it out in an hour or so.
All you need is an HD DVR reciever.
anyone used this shit yet? opinions???
To enjoy the DIRECTV on DEMAND service, you need:
A DIRECTV PlusŪ HD DVR receiver (HR20 or HR21 model)
Your receiver must be connected to the Internet
HD Access and DVR service
Broadband Internet service with a minimum connection speed of 750 Kbps or higher (DSL or cable)
A network router with an available Ethernet port
A land-based phone line connection
An available wall outlet
You can connect your receiver to the Internet in the following ways:
Wired Connection: A direct connection between your broadband router and your DIRECTV PlusŪ HD DVR receiver via an Ethernet cable.
Powerline Connection: Your home's existing power lines are used to connect your broadband router to your DIRECTV PlusŪ HD DVR receiver via a Powerline Ethernet Adapter(See "Get Connected").
Wireless Connection: Your own wireless router and adapter are used to send data from your broadband router to your DIRECTV PlusŪ HD DVR receiver
